My Most Embarrassing Photo and How I Used To Look

February 22, 2011 by Joey Vaillancourt · 250 Comments 

Embarrassing This past weekend I was treated to a surprise birthday party organized by Natasha and my family and I got to meet up with old friends and  spent some quality time with people who I enjoy being around.

My 25th birthday is yet another one that I will never forget and that is because of the great party and this years accomplishments, but also because of a gift that my mom gave me…

After opening some birthday cards and eating some cheesecake (my favorite) we went downstairs and watched a DVD photo compilation that my mom put  together for me for a gift. It was a great 3 minute video of some of the best photographed memories of my life…

But then one image came up and well…

Have you ever saw a photo that made you sick to your stomach?

Did you ever see an image that brought back painful memories?

Want to know the worse part? It was a photo of me!!!

The photo below is a photo from when I was about 16 years old and I was severely underweight…skinny…and I still believed that’s just the way I was made and there was nothing I could do about it.

 Copy of before photo

That photo was a HUGE reminder of the time when I was still super scrawny, small and helpless in trying to get bigger.

Look at my plate…I was eating steak potatoes and more steak but I  still couldn’t gain…honestly, I was running up a tall grocery bill that  got me  nowhere with gaining muscle.

Heck, my current girlfriend (Natasha) said she would not have even dated me back then just because of the way I looked. Do you blame her? I looked very young for my age, had a baby face and was sickly small!

Thanks for the great gift mom…Just kidding :-)

I walked away that night after my birthday with some stirred emotions. I began to wonder what life would have been like if I didn’t learn how to transform my body and gain muscle and defeat the ’skinny me’.

What it would have been like if I just would have listened to everyone who told me that I was just born this way and that’s the way it was going to be the rest of my life… “Your mother is small, your father is small therefore YOU will be…”
Yup, you guessed it – “SMALL!”

Sure, I know I am not the absolute BIGGEST Guy out there but the what matters is the starting point – I started from about 140lbs of skinny AND flabby body to about 180lbs now of ROCK solid muscle.

The transformation is relative to your beginning point…just like a person who started at 200lbs and went to 280lbs is good, going from 140lbs to 180lbs is good right?

Now, take a look at the difference in the photo below  that I posted to Facebook the other day…


I can’t see myself becoming the person I am today without gaining muscle and proven others wrong. I am thankful for finding the right information and not giving up when everyone told me to.

That is why I am so passionate about helping others to gain muscle and completely change their lives forever…because that’s what will happen – your life WILL change.

Sure, it does take hard work, dedication and time but the benefits pay off forever. And the good news is, because it’s slightly difficult, most people will never do it. Why is that good for you? Because when you DO end up doing it, you will be that much more noticeable!

It’s going to be the 1 Year Anniversary of Bones To Buff coming up in March and so many people have been getting results by using this program I designed to help people who are exactly the way I was.

Listen, I do know what it’s like to be the skinny guy who feels insecure, small and powerless. It’s been a while since I transformed but the memories will always remain.

If are serious about making a change, I STRONGLY suggest tryingBones To Buff for yourself and seeing exactly what is possible.  <– Click Here

It’s really a small investment with a BIG return. I am even willing to
let people try it for $1 for two weeks to see for themselves.

    The net effect of this new law, which was to take effect January 1, 2012 as regards payments by businesses and January 1, 2011 as regards payments made by owners of rental property, was to mandate
    that 1099s be filed on ALL payments to vendors where the vendor received $600 or more in any year,
    regardless of the nature of the relationship, the type of payments, etc.
    I think Kurt Warner and Tony Romo are slightly overrated, although some people would probably disagree.

  41. こんにちは。自分は今月で28歳と7カ月になります。そして暑い日になりました。ですからやっぱりムダ毛はをやりたいですよね。近年では、全国に脱毛エステがめちゃくちゃあります。やりたい場所は、人によって違いが、特に脱毛したいのは背中です。私は、人気店の脱毛ラボに行ってます。そのおかげで、だいぶムダ毛が少なくなってきました。やはり一人で処理するのとは、比べようもないです。もう少し脱毛ラボに通ってムダ毛を少なくしたいです。でも、医療クリニックに通ったとしても気になるのが脱毛にかかる費用です。それについては、脱毛ラボに聞けばいいでしょう。もう一つ気になるのが、どれくらい通わないといけないのかです。うちはできれば、一年くらいで完全に終わってくれるといいですけどね。まあ、行こうと思っている人はカウンセリングしてみましょう。
